Cinegize icon

After the installation, the Cinegy Cinegize icon appears on your Windows desktop. Double-click it to start the application.

License Management

The Cinegy Cinegize installer contains the Cinegy License Manager application intended for managing serial numbers and the resultant software licenses used by Cinegy applications when no license dongles are used. If installed, Cinegy License Service will be installed as a Windows service:

License_service

The software license is activated by the system automatically during Cinegy Cinegize installation.

After installation, the license file is automatically placed by the installer to the following location on your computer:

C:\ProgramData\Cinegy\Software Licenses\

Cinegy Cinegize searches for software licenses first, but when no local software license is found, it reverts to using the normal licensing mechanism used by other Cinegy applications through Cinegy License Service.

The license is required when host is running – either in application mode or as a service.

If the host machine is running without a license, the client machine cannot connect to the host and the corresponding error is displayed:

No_license
